Overview of the Academic Program

The current goal of MC is to provide a learning space and mode of delivery for students to continue their education, in the form of a online campus. It acknowledges that its students are currently located in various learning contexts; hence, the program offerings have been redesigned with versatility and flexibility as the main features of its content and mode of delivery.
The focus is to engage students in a flexible learning which is a combination of online asynchronous and synchronous learning activities and when necessary, offline modalities that aim to achieve priority curricular goals per academic level. In this manner, students from pre-school to graduate school will have access to continued education with greatest versatility for independent or collaborative learning and interaction.
MC shall continue to ensure that all members of the community are provided a safe and comfortable teaching-learning environment where activities are balanced for holistic development.

In the event of a long-term implementation of online learning, the school shall strengthen its structures to support the welfare, well-being, and needs of community members while maximizing technology and online platforms most especially in addressing mental and emotional health. Regular and periodic checks of both the social and IT infrastructure shall also be conducted.
Prioritization of content: The school curriculum will prioritize significant topics (knowledge and skills) in the learning plans without sacrificing learning objectives.

Learner-centered: Miriam College views the learner at the center of the educational process. The school understands that learners come from different contexts and their differences and disparities determine their varying capacities to adapt to learning. Validation of outcomes from multiple scientific inquiries will ensure sound decisions and recommendations.

Multi-disciplinarity, inter-disciplinarity, and multi-dimensionality : The Curriculum will connect or merge segmented or separate programs and activities, rather than offering them individually. The school must ensure the relevance of the teaching-learning experience.

Value-laden: The programs will remain to be infused with Christian values aimed at forming leaders in service who combine competence and compassion. Academic concepts must be translated into real-life problems and solutions, and have strong integration with values formation. Doing so will not only create more meaning but also promote adaptability and yield greater sustainability in the long run.

Socio-emotional and essential skills: Whenever applicable, teachers should focus on building students’ essential skills (i.e., communication, leadership, problem-solving), emphasizing how one’s actions have effects on others. The earlier these concepts are understood by and ingrained in students, the more equipped they will be to adapt to this new normal.
 
All members of the community shall continue to conduct themselves with appropriate and professional demeanor on all online platforms. This includes appearance and clothing, language and tone, non-verbal communication such as gestures and eye-contact, and the use of official / appropriate email addresses and handles.
